Tompkins Citizen's Effort to Repeal NY SAFE ACT

Due to it's impact on Tompkins County government and residents, the undersigned residents of Tompkins County request a resolution to be drawn and passed by the Tompkins County Legislature requesting and supporting immediate and complete repeal of the misnamed NY “SAFE Act.” We also urge the Tompkins County Sheriff and District attorney to use good judgment and discretion concerning enforcement and as to the use of their limited resources. The NY “SAFE Act” violates the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America and was passed to hastily without adequate thought, passed unread by many legislators, when Gov. Cuomo attempted to waive the constitutionally required three-day waiting period between the introduction of legislation and a vote, claiming immediate necessity when there was in fact no true emergency. We the undersigned residents request the lowest law enforcement priority for this law pending repeal and that the County hold spending for such enforcement to the lowest possible level. We urge the County to join in challenges to the constitutionality and legality of the NY “SAFE Act” in our courts.


Repeal Restrictive Gun Control Law Tompkins County Residents In a vote held in the State Legislature on Monday, January 14th, 2013, the Second Amendment Constitutional Freedoms of New Yorkers was unjustly restricted.
